The Fellatio Modification Project
Abstract: The Fellatio Modification Project is a series of oral modifications with dental technology and tissue engineering. The purpose of this project is to enhance the physical pleasure of having oral sex in gay people. Metodology: There are 3 stages in this project. For more infor visit: bioArt Taiwan Stage 1: Modify the orthodontic retainer that would be worn by patients by covering the upper palate of the retainer with soft denture reline material, which emulates real soft tissue, to create an embossed surface. During oral sex, the back and forth contacts with the raised surface would enhance the physical pleasure. Stage 2 : Enable for the raised surface from the orthodontic retainer to have a closer resemblance to the actual oral tissues, I replace the soft denture reline material with tissues constructed from tissue-engineering technology. Stage 3: I no longer use orthodontic retainer as a tool to enhance the pleasure from oral sex. Instead, I will surgically implant real embossed soft tissue constructed by engineering technology on the upper palate of the patient, thus creating a permanent modification to the oral cavity structure. Most medical technologies are used for curing diseases, healing injured bodies, and restoring to patients to perform normal functions, but this project is using the technology to extend the oral function. There are three main functions of oral cavity: aesthetics, pronunciation, and chewing. However this project will focus on another function: “Sex”, which is never mentioned on textbooks. There is no denying that human beings always have the desire to pursue the physical pleasure of sex. Therefore, this project wants to discuss the relations among sex, technology, human and the society. It attempts to push the limits and possibilities of body modification. This project is a cooperation between Fred Kuang-Yi Ku from bioArt Taiwan with Dr. Yuan-Min Lin’s Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Laboratory in the Department of Dentistry, National Yang-Ming University.
